The Week That Was...

Ian comments on the happenings in the world of cycling.

apologize for the inconvenience caused to the riders Menchov, Sastre and Mancebo, to their teams and their sponsors."

New Team CSC recruit, Fabian Cancellara, was feeling positive for the forthcoming northern classics after a strong showing at Milan San-Remo.   He explained on the team?s website that, "I actually still felt quite fresh towards the end of Milano-San Remo and that is definitely a good sign.   We had Fr?nk Schleck all the way up front so of course I wasn't going anywhere, but I did have the legs for an attack during the final kilometer,"

The 25 year old, former rider add that, "the following day I was fairly worn, but during the last couple of day's training here in Switzerland I've felt that my form is right where it should be".   He is definitely one of the riders to watch out for in the coming months as the riders bounce their way across Northern France,
and Holland.

Finally this week, Team CSC has announced a new sponsor.   MAN Aktiengesellschaft are a German engineering company who have so far supplied the team with a team coach and service truck.  The company?s logo will now appear on the teams? jerseys.

"We have gained an excellent partner and are very proud to be actively supported by such a major enterprise," said CSC's team manager Bjarne Riis.

Until next week?
